The booklet, “Travel and Tourism Heritage: Where are you local?” features a selection of essays, artwork and photos from our Junior writers and contributors age four to 15.

It provides an insight of thoughts, experiences from children living in Singapore, their travels around their world, or what their “links” are with Singapore exploring the theme “Where are you local?” a phrase inspired by a TEDTalk by writer Taiye Selasi speaks on behalf of ""multi-local"" people, who feel at home in the town where they grew up, the city they live now and maybe another place or two.

The Birthday Collective

The Birthday Collective aims to be a “Brain, Heart and Hand Trust” for Singapore as it deals with an increasingly unpredictable and complex external environment, and increasingly acute domestic constraints. Both the external and internal challenges pose risks but also opportunities, if we remain optimistic and creative in our approaches.

As a Trust, the collective focuses on the gifts it can offer to future generations. Unlike usual brain trusts, which tend to be mostly about talk, The Birthday Collective’s focus on the Heart and Hand emphasises that ideas are important but not enough; they need to be acted on to create a sense of national drive and belonging even as individual aspirations are nurtured and lived out.
